an extreme level of cooperation between the navy forces that support those operations and the landing force going ashore so we know we have to take a look at some of the new threats that are arising and we're doing that in close cooperation with the u.s. navy. we're going to look at ways to shape the situation before we land. we'll never land into the teeth of a prepared defense the way we had to do in world war ii, but we're going to rely on some of the new changes that are coming out, some of the electronic changes that we have, some of the tools that are available to us that weren't available to us ten years ago where we can deal with the threat to a certain level. we're also going to work very closely with the navy and the air force to ensure that am figuruous operations, the conditions that we would land on would be shaneed prior to -- shaped prior to us going there. thirdly, we're looking at ways in which to disperse, to land at a place where the enemy does not have a defense set up, where we can put forces ashore where the threat is not as prevalent as it may be in other areas. all o
to take up his duties in the navy department. .. but it proved to me, it might hold something more interesting. >> his identification with the navy represented not just one of his interests but was, in fact, a very basic part of this character. a very real extent of, his entire intellectual world you around his understanding of the navy. he did not see the navy is part of his world view. he understood the world based on his view of the navy. that was an interesting idea. the case, his entire political career, especially his years in the white house as a reflection of his naval center quarrelled you. the new deal, foreign policy, his fights with congress and the supreme court, world war ii, his entire political career represented him inherently naval intelligence. so i began researching franklin d. roosevelt and ernest. eventually it resulted in this book. roosevelts navy, the education of the most powerful warrior president in american history. as is always the case with research, i came upon surprises. and deadly the biggest surprise to me was the more i looked into franklin roose
and conducted surveys and scans independent of the navy's investigation of the girls and boys club, the daycare center and community housing partners, facilities and one of the areas that's been identified as having potential raid yol logical contamination, all scans of these areas showed no raid yol logical contamination, wipes also showed no signs of radiological contamination, staff has asked cdph to go out and conduct additional surveys and investigations separate and apart and independent of the navy's investigations of all areas that were identified by the navy in their draft report by being potentially contaminated by radiological material. i do want to stop there and talk a little bit about terminology. the navy's draft report identifies 9 new areas on treasure island that are raid logically impacted, that is a term that's used by the regulatory act sis and the navy to mean that these areas have the potential for being contaminated by radiological materials, it does not mean that contamination has been found, it also does not mean that there is any documented release of any radiological
navy to extend the agreement from october 1, 2012 to september 30, 2013. >> president chiu: i understand the director of treasure island is here to make a presentation but i'd like to acknowledge the district supervisor, supervisor kim, to make some opening comments. >> supervisor chuopening. >> supervisor kim: thank you. given the new concerns regarding tida no longer as a redevelopment agency and the city attorney's memo regarding potential increased liability on the city's general fund, we did bring this item to the board of supervisors without recommendation so that colleagues could take additional time to read through the items and to feel comfortable with supporting these items which we actually have been routinely bringing before the board over the last 15 years, i believe. we did also request hearing just because there has been new news potentially radiologically impacted sites on treasure island. of course there have been concerns amongst residents and we want the board to have opportunity to learn more about these reports and also ask any questions as necessary. so w
department of health has been doing the additional work to survey that area to ensure the navy is doing the cleanup that they are liable to do but that doesn't take away the concerns from the residents, i think they know we've been responsive in trying to answer the questions as best we can, we haven't seen the evidence yet but there's not evidence to the contrary, there's no evidence supporting it and there's not evidence that has confirmed that the area is safe, so i think residents want to see how the city is going to work to protect and keep the navy accountable if -- through the work they are required to do on the island. >> so, when we became aware of this information, we engaged the san francisco department of public health to work with our own independent environmental engineering consultants who we've had on board for ten years to again give us guidance for the regulatory framework and the process between the california department of toxic substance control and california department of public health and making sure that these issues were addressed, both today during their clea

's company, what the navy calls white hats, the sailors and between them and the commissioned officers, the chief petty officers who really made the ship work. and consequently, i wanted to devote a good portion of my book to the enlisted and noncommissioned people who were so instrumental in enterprise's success. the other aspect is advancing scholarship. apart from the fact that my book includes the design and construction of enterprise, we also are in a situation where in 1962 relatively little information was available from the japanese side. and that's certainly changed. i'm going to say going back a good 15 to 20 years the japanese defense ministry has published a massive compilation of wartime reports from their army, navy and air force not all of whom, in fact, only a small part of which have been translated yet. but over those recent decades, so much more information has come about. for instance, in ed stafford's book you'll read in one of the last chapters it's called tomizai. that was thought to be the name of the kamikaze pilot who dived into the enterprise's forward elevat
available to us today. having said that, staff will continue to work diligently with the navy and the regulatory agencies overseeing their cleanup to question all their reports testing an analysis to make sure that the navy fulfills their obligation to clean up treasure island, it is committed to upholding the highest standards to make sure health and safety is protected both today and in the future, we are committed to holding a meeting with the navy and the regulatory agencies down on treasure island and are working with them to schedule that, we'll continue to work with your office and we are committed to answering any and all questions that have been raised. >> and michael, i appreciate that, i know we're working to organize this meeting, i think the biggest question that comes to my mind is how we're going to keep the navy accountable because certainly the navy's liable for the cleanup, i think we're all aware of that and i'm appreciative that the california department of health has been doing the additional work to survey that area to ensure the navy is doing the cleanup
, which is the transfer agreement between tida and the navy to confer the property and we anticipate doing that in the next couple of months. to supervisor campos' question we have a full presentation on the radiological issues so i'd like to turn it back over to amy brownel to address those. >> president chiu, supervisors, my name is amy brownel an environmental engineer with san francisco department of public health. i have 19 years of reviewing navy cleanup. as you're aware the navy has been conducting and is operating the facilities at the -- they're in charge of the facilities at treasure island, and they've been conducting cleanup at treasure island since the mid-1990's under protocols established by the comprehensive response compensation and reliability act. the oversight agency for this work monitoring what the navy is doing is the california department of toxic substances control. and with respect to radiological protection, the california department of public health oversees that aspect. there are two other regulatory agencies also involved in overseeing all the navy's work and
with the base closure the city and county entered into a co-op agreement with the navy for services including operation of maintenance and utilities, police and fire, grounds and street maintenance, property management, and care take services. then tida entered into master leases with the navy to sublease properties and buildings for commercial use, maritime use and special event use, specifically those are the master leases before you today, the southern waterfront master lease, the childcare development center, events venue, land and structures, and maritime leases. tida, in turn, subleases these properties and -- to generate revenue to offset costs associated with the property management and municipal service obligations of the co-op agreement including leases for housing, commercial, and special event. some subleases are for public service and do not generate income like to our nonprofits, little league, boys and girls club, were to open spaces. housing and commercial leases generate millions of dollars each year for tida's operations to pay for the day-to-day spending. both the co-op agr
five years to write this one that would include more of the ship's company with with the navy called white hats, the steelers between them and the commission officers and the sheep petty officers who need the ship work and consequently, i wanted to devote a good portion of my book to the enlisted and the noncommissioned people and the success. the other aspect is advancing scholarship apart from the fact that my book includes the design and construction enterprise we are also in a saturation where in 1962 we had little information the was available from the japanese side and that certainly changed. we are going - 1520 years published a massive for the wartime reports for the army navy and air force. in some of the information has come about. for instance in ed stafford's book in one of the lost chapter is it's called tomizni to read the was thought to be the name of the kamikaze pilot. it was in the ship of the combat for the rest of the war. we now know based on the research here and in japan his name was shinseki, and one of the things that most intrigues me about writing the histo
what the navy contractors are doing, what cdph is doing. i have not performed any independent assessment. >> supervisor avalos: who could talk about that? >> either -- well, cdph would have to talk about their work, and... >> supervisor avalos: so last weekend, the east bay express, they talked about radium wells, talked about disks that were found in different places, in some of the areas that have had -- where there's radiation that's been potential contamination of radiation. can you talk about those -- that were found. >> the foils and disc are commodities as they're called out there. they're deck markers, they're radio loom nes sent devices used back in the day like i said for marking decks on the ships. they're used for marking gauges, marking ditches. they're used today they're just not radium. where those commodities have been identified are these solid waste disposal areas. >> supervisor avalos: where there have been known -- you talk about it as known areas of radiological contamination, in those areas they were found? >> correct. 12 primarily was my understanding. >
at budget committee in the following months on ongoing negotiations both with the navy and our developer, seeing if we can share some of the cost repairing this infrastructure because we all depend on it, his whether it's the residents, the coast gard, or a future developer. i think this is something that is a shared issue to all of us and i'm hoping that we'll all pitch in to figure out a way to strengthen some of that infrastructure in place today. i wanted to point out in we do need to terminate the cooperative agreement we can do that with 30 days notice to the navy. is that correct? >> that's correct. >> supervisor kim: thank you. >> thank you very much, president chiu. >> president chiu: supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: just to be clear on questions about liability, we have infrastructure that is not in the best shape on treasure island, and we need to make significant investments in order to keep that infrastructure most of all utilities, working and functional. and what do we expect that's going to cost in the next few years? and who's going to be responsible for covering
. all of these areas that were identified in that supplemental technical memorandum are navy areas that navy is going to investigate. they are doing their work, and investigating them. there is not going to be any development until the navy has finished all their investigation, and then all of the regulatory agencies have signed off that everything has been done correctly. during the investigation phase, the navy will control the area, have fences, do air monitoring. the cdph and the other regulatory agencies will verify that they're doing that. there is no chance of contamination going outside of the area, that the navy will control during their work. and then when it is all done, and signed off, and cdph will give a free release letter that says all the work is done, there is no contamination left, everything is same as background, basically. that's called a free release. only at that point would the property then transfer, and be used by tida and developed. there will be no development until the navy has signed off on all the radiological issues. >> supervisor campos: well i app

and this technology is still with us. the navy uses it, as far as, the navy went on to use it for clandestine deep diving operations. the offshore oil industry picked up on it right away because it was moving into deeper water just at the time sealab is coming of age. and it needed underwater workforce. it needed construction workers who could work for long hours at deeper depths than ever before. this is how you do it. those guys are out there today doing work that we don't see, worked we don't know in crazy places like the bottom of the north sea and rather insane conditions. and they are there as this program, and there is only one remaining u.s. sponsored sea-based in existence, which probably most people don't know or can't name. it's the underwater version of the international space station essentially. it's owned by the national oceanic and atmospheric administration, noaa, and managed by university of north carolina, it's called aquarius and it's been in operation for about 20 years there for scientific purposes largely, and it's a descendent of sealab. and a signif
